Sounds like typical Sun Valley Idaho clucks! Trying to make every animal on God's green earth their pet and forgetting that nature can take care of itself. I really don't feel sorry for the land owner who can't even keep a turkey off of their car, gee, wish I had that problem during turkey season
2 nighs ago i was in my shop. I walked outside and 6 hens and a tom where getting ready to roost off of my driveway. They where about 40 yards away. I had my pickup between me and them. I sat there and watched the 6 hens fly into the trees for the night. I made a couple of sounds and the tom walks to about 20 yards away from me, turns and takes a shit. I didn't know whether to be pissed or impressed. This morning 25 yards from my kitchen table the tom is all spread out strutting. last week i watched a tom chaise a hen around another tom. All within 25 yards of my kitchen table. I will also say i border natl forest in north idaho and we where watching turkeys, whitetail and elk last night from our deck.
so yea without feeding them i can get that close and shoot. They live on my property. I have been thinking a .22 pistol to the head at 10 feet would be good. lol
